Littelfuse, Inc. has introduced the TPSMA6L series of transient voltage suppression (TVS) diodes. This series can provide secondary transient-voltage protection from transients induced by load dump and other transient-voltage events for automotive electronic-control units, sensors, entertainment systems, and other applications that require high reliability. This SMA device’s low-profile DO-221AC package is less than 1.1 mm high, but it offers the same peak pulse power dissipation (PPPM) rating (600 W) as standard SMB devices. The TPSMA6L series offers superior electrical performance in a small footprint package, allowing designers to upgrade their circuit protection without altering their existing design footprint or provide more robust protection in new circuit layouts.
- 600 W peak pulse power dissipation (PPPM) rating
- Compliant with IEC 61000-4-2 and IEC 61000-4-4 standards
- AEC-Q101 qualified
- Low profile (less than 1 mm) surface mount package (DO-221AC) and small footprint design
